Hello everybody! Spring is coming despite of snowy weather we had for the weekend. Those were the last days of cold and windy days. At least, we hope so.


February arrived with several birthdays on the horizon, Carnival, and St. Valentine’s Day. It is perfect time to make some colored crinkle cookies recipes. Lemon crinkle cookies are on my list too and here we have pink cookie version to crinkle for our Valentine!

These Strawberry Crinkle Cookies ingredients are quite simple, and I am sure all of us have them at home: pink strawberry powder drink, powdered pudding mix, all purpose flour, baking powder, eggs, vegetable oil and powdered sugar. In spite of making from scratch, they are ready under 30 minutes and are as tasty as strawberry cake can be!

Before you scroll down to see how to make these pretty, rounded bites, let’s see some details I found about crinkle cookies:

Why are they called crinkle cookies?

Because these cookies are rolled in powdered sugar before baking, they have a crinkled appearance. The crinkle effect happens are the cookies expand and settle in the oven.

 

Who invented crinkles?

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies were invented by Helen Fredell in St. Paul, Minnesota in the early half of the 20th Century. In Betty Crocker’s book, “Cooky Carnival,” Crocker talks about being served these cookies at Mrs. Fredell’s home and begging for the recipe.

Can you bake crinkles without parchment?

Silicone baking pads, often referred to by the brand name Silpat, are a great replacement for parchment paper. Just drop one onto your baking sheet, and whatever you cook or bake on it will come right off. There’s no need to grease your pan, and there’s very little to clean up afterward.

 

Can I use tin foil instead of parchment paper?

Aluminum Foil with Oil: good for baking, especially at hotter temperatures. Aluminum foil with oil is another good substitute for parchment paper. As with a greased baking sheet, the fat may subtly impact the way your food cooks. Additionally, there is a chance that some of the food may stick to the pan.

If you plan ahead, you can also freeze crinkle cookies dough!

Chill the cookie dough as directed in the recipe. After that, roll into balls, and chill the cookie dough balls in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Then place the solid and cold cookie dough balls into a large zipped-top bag. Freeze cookie dough for up to 3 months.
